Science and alcohol policy: a case study of the EU Strategy on Alcohol

Dienstag 22. Februar 2011 von htm

Authors: Rebecca Gordon, Peter Anderson.
Aims: To describe the extent to which the content of the European Commission’s Communication on alcohol reflects public health-based scientific evidence.
Findings: …
Conclusions: The Communication reflects the science, in that it acknowledges the significance of alcohol as a social and health determinant in Europe. However, it places more emphasis on policy actions with less evidence for effectiveness than on those with strong evidence. It also focuses its efforts more on mapping member state actions and coordinating knowledge exchange than on providing concrete recommendations for action or developing Europe-wide policy measures. This may be a compromise between the rights of Member States to develop national policy and legislation and the obligation of the European Union as a collaborative body to protect health. Furthermore, it has been suggested that the European Union’s roots as a trading block emphasizes collaboration with industry stakeholders and this influences the ability to prioritize health over trade considerations.
